The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 FULL Breakdown
Star Wars Theory
The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 dove into the lore of Star Wars.
The theories are true! Baby Yoda, The Child is being used for his force sensitivity, to transfer that to another body. While all tests haven't succeeded, Moff Gideon and Dr. Pershing are committed to making it happen. This is interesting as I think they could even search Luke Skywalker for his force sensitivity and high midichlorian count. I was happy to hear about the M-Count which we haven't heard of since Qui-Gon Jinn mentioned them in The Phantom Menace when he tested Anakin and sent the sample to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This episode took alot of elements from Jedi Knight II which was interesting to see.
Cloning force sensitives is a hard feat, something that Palpatine and Dooku could not do with General Grievous. Something Vader couldn't do with Galen Marek in The Force Unleashed II.
It seems, though, that Snoke was created via this process, and maybe his force sensitivity was granted from The Child, which feels weird. Or perhaps, it's from someone else...Luke? Ahsoka? Another force user?
I'm excited for Episode 5 to finally see Ahsoka Tano and hopefully Boba Fett and Bo Katan later one (maybe Ezra and Sabine too).
A wild theory I have, is that Mace Windu could appear...I'll have a full video on it tomorrow for you...

      Thanks for the video :) I hvae a theory regarding the Shadow/Dark Trooper. What if these are the Mandos from Season 1 mind controlled/reanimated ? They only found there armors and we never saw any bodys.

  • chefpete12571

    So it takes Jon Favreau to fill in the giant plot hole that both Abrams and Johnson couldn't. Snoke and the First Order could have been explained in 5 to 10 mins flashback (or just a simple explanation) in any of the 3 different feature films.

    I Hope they either Make Star Wars Shadows of the Empire Cannon or they Bring Elements and Characters of Shadows of the Empire and make them Cannon, but I Would prefer Disney make Shadows of the Empire Completely Cannon because it's my Favorite Star Wars Game and there is nothing in the Cannon Preventing them to do so.

    I really hope that the Mandalorian doesn’t go too deep into the sequel trilogy. The sequels have too many bad things going on right now, and I don’t want it to drag the Mandalorian down with it.

    Moff Gideon (with dark lightsaber) + dark troopers (or what ever they are) + imperial troopers + imperial cruiser + fighters vs Ashoka Tano + Mando + Bo-Katan and her mandalorians + new republic fighters/bombers and maybe corelian corvete + maybe mandalorian clan from first season. So we may see battle on ground and in the space!

    I always feel that this channel reaches to connect things, especially old school, non-canon EU/Legends stuff, ignoring what is said within the episodes. First, Rise of Skywalker, lacking in content as it was and all supplemental information stated that the Sith cultists produced the clones of Snoke and Palpatine, not the Empire/First Order. The First Order didn't even know about Palpatine. So, with what was said in the Mando episode - these are volunteers and injected (stated by the exposition from the hologram in the actual episode), not clones....those looks like bacta tubes, not cloning tubes from RoS. Just saying, this falls WAY more in line with the Reborn from Jedi Outcast and the Dark Troopers. Stormtroopers that have volunteered to be "enhanced" and would lead to someone like Moff Gideon wanting to be enhanced with the midicolorians, i.e. him becoming more powerful.

    i had a feeling thats how snoke was born when they mentioned they were kidnapping kids with M-Cells to infuse into the "subject" lol. Also, its no wonder force sensitives were dying off one by one. These btches were kidnapping children who had even a small M-Cell count and killed them off/used for experimentation.

  • thomas jeppesen

    I have some hope that if it indeed is cloning Palpatine that is the reason for the Empire to hunt the child, the Empire will not succeed in doing so. I want this to be one giant ‘screw the audience’ (or bless the audience, really) where they hint that all of this will tie into the sequel trilogy with Snoke and Palpatine’s return; that the conclusion of the Mandalorian in season 3 or 4 shows the child recaptured by the Empire and meant to be used in a plan to resurrect Palpatine - but then, last minute, Mando and all the other characters we follow (Ahsoka, Bo Katan, maybe Luke) will rescue the child and destroy the last remnants of the Empire and Palpatine’s last hope of returning. Think about how great a twist that would actually be: The fans who care about Star Wars despise the sequel trilogy with all their heart and seeing the Mandalorian retconning it within its storyline would be the best twist in Star Wars since ‘No, I am your father’. Then the sequels will be nothing more than a ‘What if’ scenario if Mando and friends fails to protect and save the child. The perfect ending to the series, especially since EVERYBODY will expect it to play out differently by then. Of course I know this won’t happen... those who know what Star Wars needs sadly aren’t the ones in charge.

  • Blackstrat41

    Theory: I think the show is trying to elude to the idea that the facility was trying to successfully clone a force sensitive for Palpatine and it was under the control of Palpatine. It probably was once under Palps control pre - ROTJ. It is a red herring. in this time period it has been converted to what I believe to be a clone project of the remnant Empire under the order of Gideon/Those higher ranked we have not seen. The Emperor is in the shadows as always. Allowing others to do his work through his careful planning and manipulation. Only a small few know he lives. Gideon wants to create a force sensitive army or his own "Vader"/enforcer. We may find that later down the line, Palps simply uses the leftover clones for his use as Snoke. Thus making Snoke a desperate last ditch effort kinda like he seemed in the sequel trilogy. This allows the show to work around the sequels and kind of in a round about way add back story. Just a Theory!

    I feel like with the Ahsoka episode, they are going to go to her last known location and find it deserted, then do some whacky adventure with throwbacks to the films and such, then maybe find her in the next episode after, or some sort of shrine of her for some reason. Unless of course shes already actually going to be in this episode!

  • TheUnknownGuy

    I like the show but what bothers me a little is how incompetent the empire is. Hundreds of stormtroopers, deathtroopers, scouts, tanks, air support and they literally stand no chance against 3 people. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Mando would take on a star destroyer 1vs1 and win.

  • chamo77

    So having an M count in your blood is what allows things to control the force

    Hope they don't waste the series on explaining the sequels too much since life is way easier pretending these garbage movies never happened and I don't want Mando to be part of it

    I doubt that Mandalorian will do something as big as Snoke. These will probably be some sort of force sensitive supersoldiers (descriptive audio says that these are Dark Troopers). If Moff Gideon became force sensitive and led unit of force sensitive soldiers, they would be faster, stronger and deadlier, even without lightsabers.

  • Emy D

    This has made me think of a further theory... So we learned in this episode that the new Empire is trying to create force users essentially and that they want the Child's blood to do so. I think that Snoke and eventually a cloned Palpatine that we saw in TRoS is the end result that was years in the making. But how do they finally get their success if the scientist was only able to get a little of The Child's blood without risking killing him? For one, the scientist probably wanted to be sure that their unwilling donor would be able to survive and not fully into this whole series of experiments; not wanting to take extreme risks. Plus, The Child is still very young for his species and not mature enough for things like this. To be able to have success, they need a large amount of blood from a powerful force user. We know that Mando is on his way to finding Ahsoka Tano. We know that the Razor Crest now has an empire tracking beacon on it. And we know that Ahsoka had died at some point before the events of the Sequel trilogy... What if Ahsoka ends up being the key?! Think about it! She's quite a powerful force user who also was revived by the essence of the Daughter! She would end up having the potential that the Empire is seeking! And Mando would accidentally lead Moff Gideon directly to her, eventually leaving her to her fate... As much as I would hate to lose such a beloved Star Wars character, I think bringing Ahsoka into this show, may end up showing her eventual demise. When that time comes, I hope that she would only be able to be taken down after a tremendous fight as the grand warrior that she is.

      @Putins Cat yea i said im fine with it. It absolutely does and is great right now. But like this channel creator I don't consider the new movies CANON but I love this show. That could be problematic for fans who feel that way if it starts to seem like all they are doing is JUSTIFYING those films. Its like our (if you're US) elections. Even if who you voted for won you still aren't that geeked cause they didn't really give u any choice in the matter. Just the illusion

      Is it? I mean the episode was fun and action packed, but it wasn't a Pulitzer. Mando lands on planet, puts baby Yoda with baby sitter, blows stuff up, collects baby Yoda and leaves Planet. This is the basic premise of most of the episodes. Like I said, fun to watch.

    • Putins Cat

      The basic flow is more like, Mando comes to planet, puts baby Yoda with someone, blows up a bunch of shit, gets baby Yoda, and leaves planet. I watched every episode of Inuyasha, and he killed a new demon every episode. But every once in awhile, you got his back story, former love, and they put that jewel together in the end. They need to do this as well or it will get dull.

    This is probably a stupid question but why was Gideon wearing a suit that looked very similar to Vader’s?

  • achimay

    This is just a guess but maybe this series could tie with the sequel trilogy because Rey could have been the product of these lab experiments since we know she's related to Palpatine and can use the Force. Plus, the Mandolorian takes place in 9 ABY and when Rey is first introduced in The Force Awakens around 34 ABY, she is 19 years old, which would mean she was born around 15 ABY. Maybe Mando or someone took her when she was born to hide on Jakku from Palpatine. I could be wrong, but just my opinion LOL.

    This show is very repetitive. Let me guess what happens on the next episode. Mando arrives on planet. He is suckered in to help with a problem. Probably a monster in a cave. Flies around for a bit and shoots some baddies. Xena warrior princess might show up and do her leg flippy move on some baddies. Baby Yoda steals food (because that joke never gets old) The problem is solved and they fly off to next planet to do it all over again.


    Man! the only thing I hate about the this show is that episodes are shorter and they make us wait for the next episodes.. I mean I want more!!

    Ok. I don't know if someone mentioned it or the story changed. If you go back to the clone wars Ahsoka was a youngling. At this time line in Mandalorian the jedi order except Yoda were not even born yet. So at this time in Mandalorian Yoda was 50 years old. He lived to be over 700 years old. So unless her great..great...great grandma was cloned. Ahsoka wasn't even born yet. I don't know maybe I missed something.
